UPDATES & NEWS
Omar Infante is in the Royals starting lineup Monday. He is batting second.
This is good news for the Royals who were hoping that their new second baseman wasn't going to need a DL stint. It could be trouble though for fantasy owners moving forward as the bone spurs in his elbow aren't going to magically disappear. He could be dealing with soreness all year long and if it becomes too unbearable, then surgery to clean it out would be the next step. For now, it seems safe to have him in your lineup, but make sure you have a solid contingency plan.ANALYST: Howard Bender
The 76ers have waived JaVale McGee.
McGee, oddly enough, came out and said he wanted to be a "mentor" to the young players on the Sixers after arriving at the trade deadline. Just a few weeks late, McGee will be packing his bags, hoping he picks up with a contender. The seven-footer reportedly will not have to give back any money in a buyout, and is owed the remainder of his $11.2 million contract, along with $12 million next year. Analysis: Spencer Silva
